“The nice about the PSL is that if you want to be a competitive teams an achieve things you have to face these challenges. Sunday we play Leopards, Wednesday we play Mamelodi Sundowns, Saturday we play Chippa United, Tuesday we play Orlando Pirates. This is where you try to learn as quickly as possible and try to grow as quickly as possible,” said Da Gama.

“But our focus for now is on the Sunday game. We believe what happened has  happened we have to learn from that and the mood in the camp is very good. The Telkom Knockout is another opportunity for the boys to prove themselves and learn once more. The more you play in these competitions, the more you learn as a club.”
